Channel Surfing Guide: August 9, 2010

Tonight's recommended options (all times EDT):


7:00 p.m. - White Sox At Orioles, MASN. I don't need to sell you on the Orioles. If you're even thinking about watching at this point in the season, you're a die hard fan, and you won't miss this game.


7:00 p.m. - Training Camp Daily, CSN. It should be fun to watch them scramble to find things to talk about now that Albert Haynesworth has passed his conditioning test. I've got Fred Davis in the office pool.

8:00 p.m. - NFL Yearbook: Baltimore Ravens, ESPN2. If you like the NFL films music (who doesn't?), and watching Ray Lewis scream in the faces of multiple grown men, then this program is for you.

There aren't a lot of sports on tonight, so we'll give you some other viewing options to fill your evening. We have other passions here, you should too.

7:00 p.m. - Cash Cab Marathon, Discovery. I always wonder why I don't get the opportunity to ride in the cash cab. Then I realize that I rarely visit NYC, and when I do I never use a taxi. But still, that should be me.

9:00 p.m. - Last Comic Standing, NBC. The season finale, wherein we find the best comic in America. Except, you know, for all the comics who are already succesful and getting paid to do it. So maybe like the 500th best comic in America. Still good though.

9:00 p.m. - It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Comedy Central. They play two hours of this show every Monday. There's really no excuse to miss this. None.


7:00 p.m. - The Fifth Element, Syfy. Remember how good Chris Tucker is in this movie? His Ruby Rod character might only be in it for about 15 minutes, but that should be reason enough to watch.
